Hi everyone, thank you for taking the time to read this. About a year ago I have had this scalp tenderness/pain above my right ear, iv'e done some research in an anatomy book and it's in the temporal fascia/aricularis sup region. It is not constant but will come when I'm nervous or get stressed out, sometimes when I laugh hard, that area tightens up and hurts slightly until I stop laughing my head off. It's not really a headache, more like skin/nerve pain perhaps? I'm assuming it started from bench pressing about a year ago, I think I strained too hard and could have hurt myself up there. I have stopped weight lifting eversince and stuck to regular body resistance training, pushups,pull ups,situps etc, since i'm in martial arts, and need to be active with my muscles somehow. I did do some research about weight lifting and got quite a scare about possible brain aneurisms. When this first occurred a year ago I was having a headache around that region for about 2 weeks, then the headache stopped for good and the scalp tenderness stayed. My doctor, told me I hurt my nerve/muscle since he saw no symptoms of an aneurysm through my eyes, he said it should take3-6 months to heal. This examination was about a year ago when it first started. Any Ideas to what this may be? I forgot to add that I kind of feel a very small bulge around that area, not even noticable until you slide your fingers firmly over it. When I laugh hard the bulge kind of gets bigger too? real strange, any help would be great.
